Jimmy Kimmel Denies Being Behind Dennis Quaid Meltdown Video [UPDATE: Funny or Die Responsible]

Dennis Quaid Meltdown

Posted by on

Yesterday was not such a great day for Innerspace star Dennis Quaid. A video showing the actor having a serious meltdown, with NSFW F- and D-bombs galore, went viral.

But is it real? A few people online started attributing this over-the-top breakdown to late-night prankster Jimmy Kimmel. The man has fooled us before with fake videos, but the host of Jimmy Kimmel Live went on his talk show to clear the air. This crazy is all Quaid’s, apparently.

After showing the clip, Kimmel told the audience:

 There are two dozen articles online, thousands of comments, suggesting that this a prank video and I’m responsible for it. I have to say, you know, it’s disappointing ’cause you play 50 pranks and all of a sudden people don’t trust you anymore.

Kimmel can blame Reddit. One commenter on the site claimed to work for Jimmy Kimmel Live and could “confirm” the video to be one of the host’s pranks. Another chimed in to echo these sentiments, but if it were Kimmel’s handiwork, he would have come clean by now to take a victory lap. And that wasn’t the case.

Quaid’s flip-out is so epic, and so reminiscent of Christian Bale’s glorious freakout while on the set of Terminator Salvation. It seemed too good to be true, but so far, no one has come forward to claim it’s not legit. With such quotable lines as “I can’t even get a line out until Dopey the D–k starts whispering in your ear!” we predict this viral sensation is only getting started. If it is real, we await the inevitable onslaught of parody videos. (Kimmel already dubbed Quaid’s rant over Daffy Duck footage.)

What do you think? Did Quaid really have a meltdown or is Jimmy just stretching out his latest celebrity prank?

UPDATE: Funny or Die tweeted the following reveal…


Yep, the meltdown was merely a teaser for a viral video. That’s the world we live in, folks. Check out the Funny or Die meltdown video below.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
